A Jacksonville woman is facing serious charges after deputies say she poisoned her boyfriend earlier this month for talking too much. According to an arrest report from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, 54-year-old Alvis Parrish put a drug named Seroquel in the victim’s lemonade. When deputies arrived, they say the victim was extremely lethargic. They say Parrish confessed to putting something in his drink. “I gave him just enough to shut him up and called y’all so he wouldn’t die,” said Parrish according to deputies. Deputies said she yelled “do whatever you want, if you don’t take me I will kill him,” as they put her in handcuffs and escorted her to their vehicle. Parrish faces charges of poisoning food or water with intent to kill or injure a person. She is being held on $50,000 bond. (

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Wildlife officials in Pennsylvania said an escaped African tortoise went for a walk down the middle of a road, prompting 911 calls from concerned residents who feared the animal could be a snapping turtle. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission said 911 calls came in on Sunday reporting a large turtle walking down the middle of a street in Washington County. "The original caller said it was a huge snapper and didn't know what to do with it, so he called 911," Waterways Conservation Officer Jon Stark wrote in a post on the commission's Facebook page. Stark said he rushed to the scene to confirm the creature's species. "If it was as big as they said it was, that's a giant snapping turtle," he wrote. Stark said he arrived to find the 100-pound creature was not dangerous at all -- it was an African tortoise. "This big old turtle just wanted to go for a walk and be free. Still not sure where he got loose from, but now he has a new home and a large area to roam," Stark wrote. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A naked Florida man stole a pickup truck from a dealership, leading police on a pursuit early Wednesday in Melbourne. Melbourne police said 40-year-old Richard Blose was at Fiat of Melbourne before 7:00 a.m. when an employee saw him standing naked in a paint booth before the man got into a 2021 Ram truck. Blose then backed out of the booth in the pickup truck and drove off from the dealership. The Melbourne Police Department said surveillance video showed Blose at the dealership just before 5:00 a.m. wearing only underwear, walking around the business, getting into another car and sitting on its roof for 30 minutes before stealing the Ram. Once police contacted the truck’s owner, officers were able to track the truck and located it going north on Interstate 95. The department said an officer in an unmarked vehicle saw the truck “driving erratic” and striking a guardrail multiple times. Officers said the truck exited in Cocoa before authorities were able to stop Blose and take him into custody. Neighbors on Longbow Road, where the arrest was made, said Blose has a habit of losing his clothes. He was out on bond on a charge of exposing himself just last month. (
